Ah, OK, I see the problem now. The XML data in
2010-08-16) are wrong for Paris, in that they say that Paris was on
UTC from 1945-09-16 01:00:00 to 1976-03-28 01:00:00 UTC. However,
that XML data is not part of the tz database; it is generated by
someone else, from the tz database, and apparently there's a bug in
the generation process. I suggest that you take it up with whoever
generated that data.
The tz data proper, which are in
do not have the bug.
